I'm sorry to hear Jeff has passed away. He always made me laugh and he taught me to laugh at the craziness life can bring someone. My prayers go out to the family.

With love,

I met Jeff when he about 8 or 9 years old. That summer I met his parents, Richard and Darlene, his sister Denita and his brother Kevin. My family and I worked for Jeff's family. All the Mattners are awesome people! I still have my photographs of Jeff and his mom and Dad! Jeff will forever live in my heart!
Richard and Darlene, I am so sorry for your loss. Jeff was such an awesome person!

Love you both,

Just heard of Jeff's passing. My condolences to his family and friends. It was always great to see Jeff at the Benton Harbor Fruit Market, always a smiling face. As a young farmer myself, Jeff was always great about giving good advice and encouragement. He will be truly missed!
